Census Bureau Data Shows Highest Ever Median Age at First Marriage

Americans are waiting longer than ever to try matrimony for the first time. Statistics released by the U.S. Census Bureau show the median age of men who have their first wedding is now 28.1 years old, and for women it’s 25.9. In both cases, the age is the highest it’s ever been since the federal government first began keeping track of the rate in 1890.
